All about Shadow

What a catch!

Shadow is a well-mannered boy who gets along with everyone he meets. He is a typical playful pup who likes to go for walks, play with other four-footed pals, romp around and explore, and chase the occasional squirrel. Silly boy.

Well mannered in the house, Shadow knows his basic commands, and is an all around sweet pup.  Well tempered and friendly, this boy is a real gem.

He came to us when his loving owners were not able to meet his medical needs. Shadow suffered from osteochondritis dissecans in both of his shoulders.  We had arthroscopic surgery performed by a board certified orthopedic surgeon on January 6th and the procedure went very well.  Shadow has been working hard at his rehabilitation over the last few weeks and is making fabulous progress.  He's almost all healed up and ready to go.  Thanks to this surgery he will be able to enjoy and lead a long, happy pain free life.   Hooray!


Shadow is being fostered in Toronto.  His approved adopters will be required to pick him up in person.  An adoption donation of $500 will apply.

Fenced yard required.
